The Uganda anti-homosexuality law is back, this time with a life in prison sentence and possibly even more hatefully, a 5 year prison penalty for anyone who rents a home to an LBGT person and does not report it to authorities.

This is so sad - a 9th grade girl came out to her classmates and was convicted of promoting lesbianism in juvenile court, then beaten by her father with head injuries that sent her to the hospital.

I doubt we'll notice any difference from the usual weather conditions.

I want to kiss Scotland for being willing to not pander to religious groups.

St Margaret's Adoption and Family Care Society, a Scottish charity, almost lost its charitable status for refusing to place children with same-sex couples. http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/20 ... nt-page-2/

That is so amazing and wonderful. If the US took away charitable status from all the horrible religious groups spreading homophobia and hate, the government would get a heck of a lot more revenue and hopefully some of those hateful people would change their minds and stop working so hard for discrimination and intolerance.

Janet Mock returned to Pier Morgan's show to try and educate him further, he continues to be a transphobic crasshole: http://www.autostraddle.com/janet-mock- ... wn-222377/

I wish I had as much restraint and class as her though.

I love today's Google doodle. I hope other corporations/large international bodies keep pointing out the problems with Sochi and that it doesn't get swept under by Olympic fever with that attitude of "it's started so there's nothing else to do/say about it".

the photos coming from all the press people in Sochi about the lack of hotels and general unsanitary/dangerous living conditions is funny for a second but then it REALLY concerns me because these things are sort of indicating that they don't care? and if they don't care, but are adamantly anti-gay, what will they feel comfortable doing to lgbtq people who are there for the olympics? I may just be overreacting but it's freaking me out a lot


eta: just to clarify, what they have been doing to citizens is also freaking me out a lot, this is just new

It's freaking me out too. There's no way to enjoy the Olympics this year for me.

I saw that too (about the dogs), and I'm the same re: not being able to enjoy them. I mean, I haven't really watched them since I was a kid, but I would normally have looked up things I might have been interested in in years past. Not this year. One of my colleagues started a sweepstakes for the Olympics, and I won't even participate in that. That said, have you seen the Germans' rainbow uniforms? They're magic.

Russia makes first gay arrests of Sochi Olympics

Four gay rights activists, including one pregnant woman, have reportedly been arrested in St Petersburg
- See more at: http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/russ ... tr6pF.dpuf

---

I was a little wary of posting something from a news source I'm not familiar with, but this is also being reported by ABC with slightly less information, so this link wins. What sticks out for me is what they actually got arrested for doing - holding up a banner with one of the mildest, least critical gay rights statements I can imagine.

It's such an awful situation, but in some ways I think it's a good thing that so much international attention is now being focused on Russia's anti-LGBTQ legislation (and other countries around the world too). I don't have a TV so I won't be watching the games anyway, but I'll be keeping an eye on the news for more protests.

ETA: And I just love all the rainbow logos I've been seeing today!

I'm so slow. I'd seen the Google doodle for the tenth time or so today when it slowly dawned on me: "Hang on. That's a rainbow. I wonder if... yeah, those aren't the colours of the Olympic rings. I wonder if that's a protest against Russia's anti-LGBT stance."

I think people are reading into those too much, they are missing quite a few colors to be rainbow. I really doubt anyone thought of those as the pride colors while making/designing it.

I need a spot to vent about Jered Leto and that forking Dallas Buyers Club. He's totally transmysogynistic, and jesus H christ can we get some forking actual trans actors to play trans characters now please? Oh and thanks, hollywood, for giving cis people another excuse to call people 'tranny' and 'not realize it's offensive'.

Ugh, yes. It's especially frustrating when there are so many talented trans actresses out there who have already been in film and TV - they're hardly "unknowns", although they might not be enjoying the sort of fame Jared Leto does (not because they don't deserve to!) I thought this was a decent article with some good suggestions for others who could have played the part better: http://blogs.indiewire.com/bent/10-trans-actors-who-werent-offered-jared-letos-role-in-dallas-buyers-club-20140220

Also I feel that if someone pre-hormones is needed for the context of the role, there are so many queer actors who don't quite fit in the 'cis' category, that are in the vast trans umbrella.

But the worst part was really probably how that character was written, who was doing the writing, and for whom the character was written for. (Aka by straight people and for straight people)
